REDMOND, Wash., April 22, 2013 – By popular demand, “The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses” concert series is returning with “Season 2″ to eight cities from last year’s tour and is coming soon to even more locations in North America. Based on one of the most popular and beloved video game series of all time, the tour features live orchestral performances of theme music from Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda franchise. The newly announced dates include:

Returning due to popular demand:

o Atlanta; Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre; June 6
o San Francisco; Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall; June 10
o Montreal; Place des Arts; June 14
o Los Angeles; Greek Theatre; June 12
o Austin, Texas; Long Center; June 29
o Philadelphia; The Mann Center for the Performing Arts; July 25
o Toronto; Sony Centre for the Performing Arts; Sept. 7
o Seattle; Benaroya Hall; Sept. 12

Newly coming to:

o Baltimore; Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall; July 27
o Grand Rapids, Mich.; DeVos Performance Hall; Oct. 19

In cities where the tour will be returning, audiences can expect to experience breathtaking new material exploring additional chapters from The Legend of Zelda franchise, along with traditional performances of the show’s now-classic repertoire from last season.

The name “Symphony of the Goddesses” refers not only to the concert program but also to the four-movement symphony recounting the classic storylines from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. The performance also will highlight orchestral renditions of music from other games in the series, including The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask and The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. EĆ­mear Noone will conduct the full orchestra with arrangements by music director Chad Seiter, and the evening will be hosted by concert producer and lead creative Jeron Moore.

Guests will relish their favorite moments from the now-27-year-old series, carefully and beautifully timed with a gorgeous orchestral score approved by Nintendo sound director and Zelda franchise composer Koji Kondo. The concert is a festive experience for all walks of fans, many of whom attend “cosplaying” as their favorite characters.

“The demand for Zelda is amazing, and this special concert will deliver an unforgettable experience for fans,” notes Jason Michael Paul, CEO of Jason Michael Paul Productions, which is producing the concert tour. “These performances transcend culture and geography and unite people through a common love for this venerable and legendary series.”

I am amazed at the success of this concert. It was just an anniversary event that has continued to travel across the nation for another year and appears to still be ongoing. This does give a lot of us who might have missed the first performance a second chance to see it. While the new songs give returning fans another reason to check it out again.

    I want to go to Baltimare, but I’m saving money for a WIi U.

  • MiniJen

    I’m interested in going to the Baltimore one, but I’ve already been to the season 1 version and apparently, there isn’t going to be any new material there cause its their first time in Baltimore… :(

  • Marinestar0

    No return to Chicago? It sold out last time, and so many people that wanted to go couldn’t, I was one of them…

  • Hyrule’s Hero

    Anyone know if these guys sound better than Hyrule Symphony? .Hyrule Symphony sucks

    • frgovo

      Hyrule Symphony, if I remember well, was for strings only, while Symphony of the Goddesses features a full orchestra. Also, aside from orchestral arrangements, there are some wider medleys. So, yeah, I suppose it’s better.

    • Rola

      I saw them at San Antonio TX last year, I highly recommend this experience, you can see some stuff in youtube..

  • critHITjace

    yet again they decide not to return to the northeast. What is it with trying to book a show in this area? Do the Boston Pops just naturally scare away all the orchestrated shows? I know Distant Worlds tried for years and they finally did a sold out show in Boston and want to play again, but are having trouble locking it down again. :(

  • InfernalDinosaur

    got my tickets for SF :3

  • Speedsk8

    For the people who have already gone for it, compared to ZREO’s twilight symphony, which one is better?

    • MiniJen

      Oh gosh, that’s such a hard comparison! Both are so majestic! I have most of the Symphony of the Goddesses and Twilight Symphony on my iPad! They’re some of my favorite things to listen to!! XD

  • Matthew Gosparini

    I wanted to go to the one at the Greek Theatre but I had a music concert that I was playing at so I couldn’t go. Hopefully I’ll make it this time!

  • richa

    • Torqueo

      I know right! They’d sell out every night in Europe!

  • baileygirl99

  • Nikki Smith

    I can’t go to any of them. All the places are too far away for me to be able to attend any of them. ):

  • sterling

  • sexyaussiekirkland

    What’s wrong with Australia? Going to Sydney does not count as going to AUSTRALIA. We have a whole country full of other capital cities with plenty of Zelda fans!

  • Irondraggon

    Grand Rapids is like ten minutes away! Gonna go!

    • Princess Zelda

      See ya there!

  • Linkfan99

    Hmm…. one of those is really close to me, but I can’t decide if it’s worth it. It’d be between that and a few 3DS games.

  • Night Owl

    I plan on making it this time in Austin. I was bummed that I didn’t get to see it last time they were here.

  • Ryan

    Please leave the US and do a world tour. I live in South Korea and I want to see this.

    • fgdgfdg

      I went to the one in Philly last year, and I’m going again since it’s pretty close to NY, at least where I live.
